The food is excellent at Buca, and one of few restaurants that you can still make reservations. I have been several times, but unfortunately, this visit was not good. We had poor service, seated in a dark corner, waited forever for our food, and never had our drinks refilled.

Every time we've come we've received great food and fantastic service. We usually get two dishes and a salad, which feeds my husband and I PLUS our 10 year old daughter, all for about $40. If you love great service and Italian food, check this place out!

My mother-in-law loves this restaurant so we come every year on her birthday. It accommodates our large loud irish family very well and the food and service is outstanding!

Cool place in downtown Indy. When you enter, you can enter thru the kitchen. Kind of cool, not really sure of the cleanliness of that though. Anyhow, the staff was very cordial and adept at their work. The food was outstanding. The prices were a little on the high side in my opinion. The small dishes are supposedly made for... More

It's Italian food in the truest sense. Huge portions of hot pasta or pizza. The problem was, the smallest dinner portion serves 2-3 people (they do openly say this on their menu), but I was a solo diner. If you're looking for big, family style eating on s budget then this will work for you. Otherwise, try something else

My wife and I used to love Buca but the prices are going up and the quality is going down. It clearly is not like it used to be. Don't get me wrong the food is pretty good but not like it used to be. You cannot afford to eat here for two. I recommend eating here with at least... More

The food is very good but the dishes are made for more than 1 or even 2 people. This chain has very good pasta with a variety of dishes -and an extensive menue. The dishes are very large. It is not a very good place for lunch as they still have huge portions with dinner prices.

I liked the interiors of the place more than the food. But that does not mean the food was bad. Their tiramisu was great. And it comes in A BIG bowl which atleast 8 people can have after having a full meal.

The entire family used to enjoy this place and went there for family dinners. Not sure what has happened, but carry out from there has been short changed and/or inedible at least 4 times consecutively, and I'm done. I was rather addicted to their salad with prosciutto and Gorgonzola but the final try found the lettuce full of cores and... More
